Oppo patents a phone design with a tiny rear-mounted secondary display Oppo Patent

Smartphone makers are known to draw inspiration from their competitors. We’ve had many brands that have blatantly copied iPhone design and even the look and feel of iOS icons. Now a new patent filed by Oppo shows a phone that looks eerily similar to the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, though with obvious changes.

This patent was spotted on Chinese National Intellectual Property (CINPA) by 91Mobiles shows a yet to be released smartphone with a circular rear camera module housing three different sensors and an LED flash. This sort of setup was recently seen on Huawei’s flagship phone, however, the inner circle on Oppo’s design is a tiny secondary display.
